. >> you have been working together with dianne feinstein in both houses and your colleague kersten jones. we intrufd her yesterday. i know you're hitting all points, but politically what do you think is viable? do you think things have changed since newtown, or do you think we are still back with the power of the nra and the money that they contribute to members and the domination by republicans on the house side who will not let it get to the floor? >> well, listen, those are all things that are certainly out there, and anybody that ever underestimates the nra don't kid yourself. they are extremely powerful. what i'm saying is newtown did change because the american people have responded to it overwhelmingly. here we are 47 days after the shooting, and we're still talking about it. that's how deeply it's affected everybody. it's going to be up to the american people to be very honest with you on where we go. saturday there's going to be the million moms walking against gun violence across the country. we have more groups than we've ever seen before stepping up and saying how can we help

ban is still a bit of a stretch. >> critics say that when dianne feinstein was in office and congress failed to reauthorize it, what is being proposed is not banning all weapons, but dealers could so what they have in stock. the makers say it is disappointing but not surprising that senator feinstein is focusing on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals and focusing on our broken mental-health system. they say that finds him has been trying to ban weapons for decades. she was president of the san francisco board of supervisors in the late 1970s and she was there when a disgruntled member killed two people on the board. jon: let's bring in jonah goldberg. he is a fox news contributor. it is said that mr. obama plans to take a more combative approach on gun control. going around the country putting on a town hall event, rallying the people try to get this thing passed. do you think it will work? >> i am pretty speculative. he said he wanted the help of the people at his inaugural celebrations. he wanted people to call on the pressure to congress. he said he wanted

[ inaudible ] >> reporter: the group called organizing for action, craig, which is essentially the relaunched branch of the obama campaign is also helping out in this effort. they are sending out emails and trying to rally support at the grassroots level for stiffer gun legislation and this continues to be an incredibly divisive issue and new legislation will be tough to get through both chambers of congress. >> kristen welker at the white house, thank you so much. we'll check b
there is something different going on this time than in past incidents. >> yeah, to your point. dianne feinstein said it will be hard but you see people like joe manchin willing to work on some things. he's a touchstone for a lot of democrats who look to people who are supporters of gun rights. i'm wontderring when you have the people who do push back on certain parts of it and that does include joe manchin and people like harry reid who basically has said he's not superulatively supportive of the president's plan. let's put it that way. i'm wondering, ryan is this because they live in those gun states, they fear the nra? tell us about the difficulties of getting some people like harry reid on board. >> right. it's because they understand the politics of guns. the problem for gun control advocates has never been broad popularity. a majority of people generally support gun control. they support an assault weapons ban. you showed those polls. there's broad support for these kinds of things. the problem isn't intensity. people who support an assault weapons ban don't -- in the past have not voted on the

up. we will hear the president talk about this again. dianne feinstein will introduce her legislation. that is gonna happen this month in the coming days. the question is when does senator reid of a bill to the floor and what? he has said he will move budget legislation to before, but he has not said what will be in that legislation. when will he do it? timing is everything here, but it will happen in the coming term. host: and climate change, the timing of that. on twitter -- guest: implicit is the question of whether there will be any consideration given to a carbon tax. the white house has gotten this question in the past. they have suggested that is not something they are considering. it is conceivable that obama has rethought that, and it might surprise everybody by putting forward something that would both try to raise revenues, thereby addressing the deficit issue, but also try to curb emissions of gases that cause global warming by making it more expensive. as a practical matter, that is a nonstarter. it is one of those policy debates that advocates love. it seems simple, very
-capacity magazines. you see the legislation being prepared by senator dianne feinstein and others. we ask they strengthen national background check system and eliminate existing loopholes, strengthen penalties for strong purchases of guns. the plan president obama unveiled includes much of what we asked for in that letter. we will work with the president and the congress to get critical in needed legislative reforms enacted now. we also shedding courage corporations to follow common-sense principles and business practices to encourage gun safety. we will support and encourage any official of any political party who understands that the american people deserve to be protected from threats both foreign and domestic. we devote our time and energy to serving our community. that is public service. , on monday, the nation will celebrate the inauguration of president barack obama and the legacy of the late dr. martin luther king jr.. as mayors at this moment in our history it is good to be reminded of dr. king's words. dr. king said the measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfo
